Bleeding Heart to Become West Town Bakery & Diner

New, 11 comments

It's been a crazy few months in the world of Bleeding Heart Bakery & Cafe in West Town, but it looks like it's about to become, seemingly, drama free. Back in March, a rift emerged between partners Scott Weiner and Greg Mohr and original BHB owners Vinny and Michelle Garcia. Now that rift seems over as Mohr and Weiner will take full control of the business, turn it into West Town Bakery & Diner and officially part ways with the Bleeding Heart brand.

BHB will close at 9 p.m. on July 22 for interior renovations and then will re-open as West Town Bakery & Diner at 7 a.m. on July 28. It will open as a 3-star Certified Green Restaurant and will partly source ingredients from the newly installed organic rooftop garden outside the just-opened Homestead restaurant next door above Roots Handmade Pizza; Mohr and Weiner own all three restaurants.

When the cafe re-opens, sit-down dining will take place from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., while counter service for coffee and pastries will remain open until 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and until midnight on weekends.
